't have enough jails there why do we have any jails empty in the united states at taxpayer expense? maybe that's a whole another issue. why do we have a whole federal prison sitting there? is it because some of these prisoners in california are not federal prisoners? peter: only 200 minimum security prisoners at that facility at this point. and we don't mix state and federal prison population. gretchen: but we will bring terrorists there? on its face it seems weird to me that we wouldn't be able to find some use of this prison, instead of bringing some of the world's worst terrorists there. steve: and we were talking about whoever becomes members of that jury for can a lead sheik mohammed their families could be a target. the people of the surrounding area there in illinois, some of them feel like you bring these guys here then suddenly we will be the focus of jihadi and stuff like that. we don't like that. congressman kirk who is going to join us in 45 minutes wrote this letter to the administration. quote: steve: mark kirk is going to be joining us very promptly to talk about that gitmo
. at the conclusion of this soundbite, you will hear for the first time the president of the united states warning of a double-dip recession in the united states. listen. >> there may be some tax provisions that can encourage businesses to hire sooner rather than sitting on the sidelines so we're taking a look at those. i think it is important, though, to recognize that if we keep on adding to the debt even in the midst of this recovery, that at some point people could lose confidence in the u.s. economy in a way that could actually lead to a double-dip recession. brian: i think it also shows his impatience with the fact that the hiring is not coming back as quick. the unemployment number is higher than anyone projected. and on top of that he's saying, look, i see the polls, i see what happened two weeks ago. america is concerned about our national credit card. member deficits don't matter. clearly it does matter. gretchen: in both virginia and new jersey both of those states went to republican governors. the number one concern from voters at the exit polls was the economy by a huge margin so a lo

're doing poorly, governor corzine, when the president of the united states has to give some of his best poem to your campaign and appear three times in the midst of some very critical decisions. steve: but mr. christie touched on something important. the key to new jersey hangs in how many votes chris daggett, the third party candidate can siphon off. latest shows he's polling at about 12% which could doom chris christie's chances. gretchen: i thought maybe daggett would drop out of the race and throw his support in one or either of the directions which would probably mean a win for chris christie. let's take a look at the latest polls. this quinnipiac university poll has chris christie two percentage points ahead of jon corzine. believe four polls were released within the last couple of hours. all are within the manchin of error -- margin of error. some have corzine up by one or two points. some have christie up by one or two points. there are more registered democrats in the state of new jersey than republicans. so the one word that's important today is turnout. who will turn out? bri
. >> in the name of the united states of america i christen the new york. brian: the idea to melt the steel from the collapsed world trade center towers and use it to make a naval ship came from the city's former governor, george pataki. >> we would be showing that new york is back strong. and the symbol of the freedom of our great people and our great country. >> in 2002 the knave yea long with the louisiana shipbuilders began inspecting the steel from the world trade center site that was removed from ground zero, then truck it had to a landfill in staton island. they found the steel was strong enough to be used for the stem of the massive ship and went to work. 7.5 tons was used to help build the bow of the 25,000-ton vessel. in august of 2005, shipbuilders were forced to take an unscheduled break. the incomplete vessel was anchored on the mississippi river just west of new orleans when hurricane katrina struck. the u.s.s. new york cost $1 billion to build, is 684 feet long and 105 feet wide it can carry a crew of 360 sailors and up to 800 marines who can be delivered to shore by helicopters a

in the coming year. brian: the president of the united states did not watch the results. his kids and his wife went to see miley cyrus. did he not see the results come in. he said he was not that concerned about it. first, here's major garrett on what the president was doing. >> the rhapsody of the moment couldn't last. election night, even one as historic as barack obama's fade. and everyone knew the inauguration glow would fall prey to the recession, two wars and bailouts, costing the president popularity points along the way. according to gallup, the gap between the president's approval and disapproval narrowed steadily, fall from a spread of 56 points on inauguration day to 17 in late october. still his approval rating remains at 53%. >> the good news for barack obama is that people like him. his brand, if you like, has not been overly diminished. >> but on key aspects of presidential power, mr. obama has lost ground. a democratic pollster who worked for the clinton white house sees signs for concern. >> his ratings on leadership, decisiveness, getting things done are declining marketedly.
-elect of the united states. gretchen: there is discrepancy when this photo may have been taken. it could have been as far back as 2005. none the less they were in his company before. >> the white house, something they did during the bush administration and also during the clinton years as well is when they have a big party like that, they have somebody from the social secretary's office right there with the guest list. and the problem was there was nobody at that particular guard gate with the guest list. brings us to our question of the day. now, keep in mind, these people who were the party crashers were long-time fixtures on the social scene in washington, d.c. but if, you know, a normal person wandered in off the street and wound up that close to the president of the united states, getting a picture of him, certainly there would be charges and whatnot. is there a double standard? because right now, you know, the stories are they are trying to get on tv. gretchen: to the highest bidder. >> desperate housewives of washington, d.c. brian: the latest balloon boy incident. that's what this is. gret
with capital murder, and this guy who is regarded as a radicallizer. he had been in the united states. and as we have told you, he was one of the guys who talked to a couple of the 9/11 hijackers. the big question, though, is, why didn't they connect the dots? so the f.b.i. knew. and we should point out that the f.b.i -- the reason this fellow came on to the radar was they were monitoring somebody else. the next thing you know, major hasan pops on to their radar as well and they started monitoring him. but what they said was, you know what, his communications with this radicallizer over in yemen seems consistent with somebody who is doing research at walter reed, and that's exactly what he was doing. so they said, he's harmless. gretchen: except when you start connecting the rest of the dots which is he apparently followed many people, i'm a muslim first, an american second ex-talked about how opposed he was to the war and whether or not he would feel comfortable killing muslims if he was sent overseas. he was deployed to go to afghanistan in january. and here's the catch for me. if a

, the question you begin with is this. is he the only one in the entire united states touched by this ideology? of course not. that's why we are worried. that's why we want the administration to review its doctrine on how to find the jihaddists. steve: walid, thank you. >> sure. brian: we showed you this shocking video, slugfest at a high school soccer game. what punishment should these girls face? up next, the man whose job it it is to figure that out. steve: and celebrating veterans day with the biggest crowd of veterans in our country. we're going to take you live to branson, missouri. we will talk to colonel oliver north and listen to the sons of the silver dollar. gretchen: did you see this video? the soccer field is starting to look more and more like a boxing ring with game day turning into a huge fight night. wyesterday we showed you this disturbing video of an all-out brawl during a girls' soccer game. the executive director of the rhode island interscholastic lead is leading the investigation into the may lay. good morning, tom. >> good morning, gretchen. gretchen: i know you were st
